Shading Series: Flamingo

This is the second animal in my shading series. You can find the first here.

Materials: Mechanical Pencil (.9, HB)

Time: 1 hour

This one was fun! Lots of layers of shading & lots of fun detail. I’m definitely learning to take my time to layer the values. I used to start  a drawing & work from one area to the next, however Hammond has you start by laying down the darkest values first, then midtones, then blending & highlights and to add detail last. It has been a very valuable lesson.

Up next: Kitten
